With their structure, stability and permanence, shrubs are the foundation of any garden. Shrubs can help guide us with our other plantings and set the tone of our gardens, such as regal boxwoods in a formal landscape, old-fashioned lilacs in a cottage garden or sculptured topiaries to create a whimsical look and feel.
Often, evergreen shrubs serve as a frame to draw our attention to the beautiful blooming plants around them. But many shrubs go beyond their supporting role to briefly become the superstars of the garden with an explosive burst of color or a sweet fragrance.
Think of azaleas and rhododendrons, whose dramatic and prolific blooms help make April one of Washington’s most beautiful months. Or dramatic hydrangeas with their huge blossoms that shout “look at me!”
